St Patrick, our Patron Saint... 100 prayers per day. From being kidnapped at 16 and taken to Ireland as a slave, to becoming a missionary and bishop who established monasteries, schools and churches throughout Ireland. What an amazing Patron Saint!
Fun and games to celebrate St Patrick's Day!
And then... 'Makedo' to finish off the day!
Looking forward to the end result... Irish Castles!
Today we celebrated the nomination of our House Leaders and Traffic Safety monitors. Congratulations goes to those students who have shown not only their amazing
leadership skills but also service to the community.
Another fabulous drama session with Stacey from Applied Theatre this time with a poetry focus.
After discussion, freeze frames, role on the wall, panel hot seating and a written activity the class were given only 3 minutes to collaborate and recreate a poem using the same theme... the level of engagement was inspiring and the results... breathtaking.
Today we celebrated the success of our St Patrick's students who were involved in the Summer Learning Journey. As many students luxuriated at the beach or pool these students continued their learning, reading and responding to activities. They were also blogging their work and commenting on the blogs of their peers (also on the same journey). Room 8 would like to congratulate our winner, Roneeza and also our second and third students Anamaria and Ida. Participation went to Augustine, Mo'onia and Aleenah. Well done! Room 8 is so proud of your effort and your positive attitude towards learning!
Room 7 and 8 had a wonderful morning practising their cricket skills and enjoying each others company. It was great to see the team spirit and camaraderie between both classes. Spending time together is the best part of school life... times that we will always remember!
